Our Studio Philosophy

Here at the YMCA Creative Arts Center we provide a climate of love, support and instruction designed to maximize human, athletic, and artistic development, while stressing sportsmanship, friendship, and creativity. This wholesome physical and recreational outlet will provide opportunities for physical, creative, social and emotional development.

Dance Team

We also strive to build independence, confidence, a strong work ethic, and a positive self-image for our dancers/artists. We are developing classes with a strong, consistent technical base that will give your child a strong foundation in dance.

We teach the core values of honesty, respect, and character in every class through positive verbal instruction, correction, and compliments. We have goals to help our students grow and develop their artistry and creativity by allowing them to safely express themselves in environment that is free from insults, favoritism, and judgment from both other students and teachers.



Contact Sarah Zang, sarah.zang@ymcacolumbus.org to sign up for dance and baton classes or to add your child's name to our waitlist.
